Need help with Nvidia or Amd video card support

Recommended Posts

I have a dell optiplex 780 and i currently have a ati radeon hd 7500 and an nvidia quadro fx 1700, ive tried several driver options to get a better refresh rate for either card with no avail. Can someone help me find a driver that works for the most support for either. the nvidia no longer displays output when the OS loads. the radeon works but without full accelleration.

    • guys please help me stucked at apple logo while installing im using hp laptop core i5 7200u 6gb ram amd radeon R5 M430
    • I have working audio, graphics and network on this 10.13  Now store has sent me "security update" which I believe is 10.13.3.  Has anyone done this via store? What do I need to do before I install it? I have issues loading EFI so have to always manually mount it (Clover configurator and EFI mounter both fail) but using terminal and command "open /efi" I am able to mount and make changes to my config.plist too.   
    • Hi guys, I try to install Mac OS X Yosemite on my computer, but... i get stuck at the logo (when i boot it) + i see a bar, who won't charge. Can you give me a solution?   Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual  CPU  E2180  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz Memory: 2048MB RAM    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI  System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) Display Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 210  Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce 210 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC  
    • Just to Add I used My windows machine with TransMac to wipe and build the install (including USB). I only used the clover installer I forgot that it could switch to chameleon.
